Let’s face it, we all have that friend. Y’all know what I’m talking about? The friend who’s not afraid of shutting us down when needed? No matter what it is, whether it’s that we’re talking too much, (or doing anything too much) or when they see us heading down a wrong path; they’re simply not afraid to step up and say (or do) something. You know, that special friend who worries much more about your well being than your feelings? That friend you’d sometimes just as soon slap as to look at them? Yep. We’ve all got that friend!
Those of us who are saved have the Holy Spirit of course, but the truth of the matter is, often times, we don’t heed His gentle warning. Thus the reason He gives us that friend! If you don’t have that friend? Chances are you are a control freak, who has always had issues with authority, and there’s a good chance you could be codependent and an enabler; not to mention, it’s highly likely that you don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus! IJS.
If you fall into the category of not knowing Jesus? I suggest you FIND HIM, and GET TO KNOW HIM ASAP! Once you’ve found Him, He’s sure to place just the right people in your life to hold you accountable! Without Jesus, it’s hard to maintain any true relationship; friendship or (and especially) otherwise.
Today I pray that, should we, at any time, choose not to listen to the Holy Spirit, He’d send someone our way to help us see things His way!
The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them. Romans 8:14
